AVG Technologies Introduces

AVG TuneUp for Android™

AVG Technologies, a worldwide leading provider of Internet and mobile security, privacy and optimization to 146 million active users, has announced its AVG TuneUp for Android™ is now available for free for Android smartphones and tablets.

Built to help users get improved performance from their Android™ smartphones and tablets, AVG TuneUp for Android™ combines several tools to increase device performance, including a task killer, battery saver and storage space manager, and also allows users to monitor their data usage.

The application enables users to fine-tune their device’s performance to keep it running as smoothly as possible.

“Smartphones and tablets are increasingly integral to our business and social lives. Being able to reply to email, edit documents, search the web and connect with our friends while on the move is something that many of us take for granted,” says Yuval Ben-Itzhak, Chief Technology Officer at AVG Technologies. “Given this, it can be incredibly frustrating when your device runs out of battery suddenly or when multiple applications are leading to a sluggish user experience. AVG TuneUp for Android™ offers a range of easy to use smart tools that work together to ensure that your Android device can keep up with your busy schedule.”

AVG TuneUp™ for Android builds upon an existing mobile presence from AVG Technologies, which provides award-winning AVG mobile security to millions of users worldwide. AVG’s suite of mobile products frees users to do the things that they really want to do, without having to worry about malware, virus or performance issues.

The AVG brand originated from Grisoft’s first product, “Anti-Virus Guard”, launched in 1992 in Czechoslovakia. Five years later the first AVG licenses were sold in Germany and UK. AVG was introduced in the U.S. in 1998.

It’s estimated there are more than 146 million users have AVG Anti-Virus protection, including users of the Free Edition. It’s compatible with Microsoft Windows, Android, Linux and FreeBSD operating systems.
